Start-ups

We have been working in the start-up sector for several years and have enjoyed helping many new

clients see their new ideas grow into successful businesses.
 

Our experience of working with start-ups tells us that each start-up needs unique and tailored support in turning their idea into a successful business. We provide a team of experienced and trusted advisors who have the skills and dedication to help our clients achieve their goals.
 

We provide pragmatic and commercial advice to identify the key areas in which our clients need our
support and how to maximise the impact of legal budgets. We also offer flexibility with our fee structures to ensure that we can support our early-stage clients as they build their businesses.


We have put together a Start-up Pack to explain some of the legal issues and considerations that most start-ups face.

Our experience includes providing advice in relation to the following:

 

  • non-disclosure agreements (NDAs)

  • different types of corporate structures for setting up or restructuring businesses

  • shareholder agreements

  • financing deals, joint ventures and partnership arrangements

  • setting up ESOPs

  • developing strategies to protect and commercialise IP

  • securing trade mark protection for brands (nationally and internationally)

  • employment contracts and consultancy agreements for contractors

  • terms of trade for signing up customers

  • website terms + conditions

  • privacy policies and issues relating to use of customer data and personal information
